You've developed the driveway into a very pretty area.Is your wife's grandfather's rose New Dawn or Dr. Van Fleet? I am guessing based on the glossy dark foliage. Dr. Van Fleet blooms once. New Dawn reblooms. I have their related White Dawn, not as vigorous a grower.
Nell Jean - that rose does only bloom once so it must be Dr. van Fleet, It is pale pink and has a pale fragrance too,
